What to Expect
There was a time when a keynote speaker could educate an audience on a particular subject. Those days are now long gone. Now we use blogs, podcasts, and YouTube videos to teach our people.
When you hire a keynote speaker, they need to do a whole lot more than cover about bunch of bullet points on a slide deck.
My keynotes are different. I don’t give presentations. Instead, I initiate conversations that connect with my audiences on an emotional level.
When you connect emotion to information, you create action. And action is the basis for change.
I believe this change rarely includes PPT and must include lots of audience participation. I will challenge your group put down their phones and take responsibility for getting the most out of my presentation.
I will challenge their paradigm and chances are high that I will offend somebody.
My messages are typically simple and designed so that your group walks away with 3-5 key fundamentals that they know will change their life and can be implemented almost immediately.
For more than 14 years, CJ has helped hundreds of overachieving professionals achieve record sales and profits. More importantly - he’s taught them how to find more joy and satisfaction in all their hard work.
CJ’s professional career began at Arthur Andersen where he helped large corporations reengineer their business processes. In his next executive role, CJ was responsible for managing operations, finance and IT. His last corporate position provided him with the opportunity to manage a sales team in the software industry.
In 2003, CJ decided to venture out on his own and started an executive coaching firm. Since then, he’s spent more than 10,000 hours in front of entrepreneurs, executives and their teams.
After only a few years, CJ noticed that no matter how much success these professionals achieved, very few every seemed to truly enjoy the journey. It didn’t matter if they exploded the top line, doubled their income or become CEO – it never seemed to be enough.
CJ’s latest book, The Overachiever’s Dilemma, lays out a proven strategy to help overachievers get more satisfaction and joy in their lives while still achieving all their professional goals.
CJ lives in Indianapolis with his wife and two kids.
